EPIC Change

ACCELERATED CHANGE and relentless competition have become permanent characteristics of the global age. The need for all organizations to respond to adaptive challenge is unprecedented. However, leading change, especially large–scale change, is the most formidable challenge in all of leadership.

Any organization′s ability to adapt and adjust to shifting demands is really a function of its leaders′ capacity to summon and redirect institutional will. EPIC Change is the hands–on resource written for any leader who is charged to lead change in a turbulent environment. Based on a landmark study of fifty–three cases of large–scale organizational change, international thought leader and business consultant Timothy R. Clark outlines his path–breaking EPIC Change approach, which has been successfully field–tested by leaders around the world. Clark provides a road map for leaders to learn how to pull energy out of an organization in order to respond to disruptive outside forces. The approach combines both strategic and tactical tools to help leaders at all levels get comfortable with uncertainty, live on the edge of chaos, and sustain competitive advantage in the face of endless dynamic changes.

The EPIC (Evaluate, Prepare, Implement, and Consolidate) approach for change management draws on the research–based "power curve of change." As Clark explains, change fails less often for poor strategy or technical difficulty. Rather, it is a leader′s inability to draw out the discretionary efforts of people that usually signals failure. The EPIC approach teaches leaders the critical points of leverage for energy management within an organization and offers a comprehensive guide to change leadership arguably the most critical competency of the twenty–first century.
